In response to the growing need to provide support to the vulnerable and disadvantaged in the local community, CatholicCare, together with the Catholic Parish of Forster Tuncurry, have launched the Foster Tuncurry Community Kitchen. This service provides assistance to vulnerable members of the Great Lakes community regardless of their age, gender, physical and intellectual capacity, religion or ethnicity.
Located in the parish hall at 33 Lake St Forster, our service operates each Wednesday and Thursday, serving meals between 12:00 and 1:00pm. However, the Kitchen offers far more than just a free meal. With the assistance of volunteers, CatholicCare and Forster Tuncurry Parish we have created a space where people can feel safe and enjoy the company of others. It provides a means of social inclusion for its diners. We are non-government funded and rely primarily on the generosity of the Forster Tuncurry community, volunteers and donors to sustain this valuable service.
How can you help support this valuable service to the community
If you are looking for ways to support your local community during this pandemic, and you do not identify as being in any of the ‘at risk’ categories for COVID-19 that have been flagged by health authorities, then we need your help! There are many ways you can get involved, including the collection of food donations from local businesses, assisting with the preparation of the daily meal, making up fruit & vegie packs for our diners, cleaning, serving meals and greeting the people we support with a smile!
You can also contribute to our ‘meat chest’
Cash donations towards our meat chest will allow us to purchase meat and other dairy products needed to complete our daily menus.
Thank you for your consideration. All enquiries can be made through the Coordinator on 6539 5900 or email at [email protected]
